Grace & Thorn

About this school

Grace & Thorn is a florist based in Hackney, Soho and Brick Lane.

Inspired by Nik’s Grandparents who used their kitchen as a potting shed, Nik Southern founded Grace & Thorn in 2011. Opening her tiny floral studio onto East London’s busy Kingsland Road, her philosophy was simple: help people see flowers and plants in a different way, drawing on the world of nature, art and fashion rather than traditional florist designs.

Grace & Thorn plays with unique combinations of textures and patterns so no two pieces are ever the same. An asymmetrical style, focus on foliage and DIY classes has attracted a cult following across London. Grace & Thorn now has a flagship store in Hackney and opened its doors to Soho in the Winter of 2015. A third store in Brick Lane has just been launched.
